Ease of Use

They have a coule of firmware but this is the first version. So there are bugs in it. The thing I really hate is when the transfer get over 26kB/s the router restart itself. It should NEVER restart itself like that. Might be a defect but waiting for to give me an RMA #.

Bought it thinking "what a great deal from a reputable manufacturer". Built in USB server realy sold me. BUT! Installed it and downloaded firmware. Instructions said to wait for fifteen mins for firmware to complete installation. I waited for an hour and the only light that remained on was the power light. I called tech support and they told me (in a very incomprehensible INDIAN english dialect), how to reset it. It didn't work! Twice we went through the routine and nada. So the "technician" at the other end of the phone told me it was broke and to send it back to the place of purchase for a return. So I did and am awaiting a replacement, which I'll be damned if I upgrade the firmware for. I'm not a non-technical person, I support 120 workstations for my company, so it's not like I don't know what I'm doing. If upgrading the firmware "broke it", well make up your own mind. I'm going to try the product again, without the firmware upgrade, stay tuned for another evaluation on how it performs.

SMC wireless router w/print server

by Hank on 3/1/2006

The wireless router was easy to set up with the exception of the print server. I found that you cannot re-use a printer port and just reconfigure it. You need to create a bogus IP printer port, delete your old port IP, then configure the one you just deleted. Once I got it working, I could print from any PC...even one that was on a VPN configuration. I use a Canon S-750 printer. Only problem is that it doesn't report back status of the printer.. only that it printed. The router comes with so many choices for security and even includes a copy of Zone Alarm on the CD. Great product, Great price!

Bought It, Configured It Manually, and I still lik

on 3/31/2005

I bought mine and the install discs were missing so I updated the firmware and configured the routing manually. It works great. The signal is strong and the print server was a snap to set up. I did have a small problem logging into the router remotely, but that's been my biggest complaint thus far.
